Representatives from each of these organizations will also attend the event: Oliver Samwer, CEO at Rocket Internet, Karel Dörner, Senior Partner at McKinsey and Torsten Schuppe, Senior Director Marketing EMEA at Google.

But the journey for entrepreneurs is hard. We want to help even more European entrepreneurs grow & scale their ideas into exciting new businesses,” states Torsten Schuppe, Senior Director Marketing EMEA at Google.
